Description / Updates
The project includes the planting of crepe myrtle trees evenly through the medians from Lancaster Drive to Range Road and installation of irrigation. The grass and weeds currently at ground level will be finished using pine straw or mulch. The goals are to provide a beauty, calm (slow) traffic, and provide a partial barrier to prevent a head-on collision on any wayward driver.
